San Fransisco rock trio Black Map have released a new single today from their forthcoming album titled “In Droves,” due out on March 10th.
“Ruin was one of the first songs we wrote for the new album,” shares bassist and frontman Ben Flanagan. “The song is from the perspective of someone who sees the world coming apart before their eyes and detailing the chaos as they look for a way out.”
The new track is also available on all major streaming services and will be offered as an iTunes instant gratification track. Fans who pre order the album today will get both “Ruin” and the previously released “Run Rabbit Run” single immediately as a download.
Black Map will release “In Droves” on Friday, March 10th 2017 through Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and SPV overseas. The band wrapped up production on the recording last month with Aaron Hellam at Oakland’s Hellam Sound (The Trophy Fire) and created an ambitious but no less intense sophomore set, a boundary smashing, down-tuned heavy rock slab.
The band will be hitting the road this January with Chevelle in a co-support role with Dinosaur Pile-up. Dates kick off next week on January 13th in the band’s hometown of San Francisco at the legendary Fillmore. The tour will hit a majority of the western states before wrapping up Boulder, CO on January 26th.
